Petrol/Gas Station Architecture

There is a very unusual petrol station in my town, I took pics of it a few weeks ago, but now I can find them.


I'll still make this thread, and get pics of it another time.



This is sort of like the 'Macdonalds Architecture' thread.

Post pics and info of petrol stations in your nation, Unusual or not.

Could be an interesting thread... here is a local one that always makes me laugh. It is
a small gas-station chain, and very low-budget/70's look to them, as they pretty much haven't changed in the past few decades. I am not sure if "beaver" has the same double meaning overseas as it does here, but in any case, this "beaver" works hard for you!

In England, it may be known as a "fanny"!

I can't think of any funny ones, but I think BP probably has the nicest stations in the Chicago area.

Not my photos, or even in Chicago but they are similar looking

I don't find gas stations to be that special. Many of them mainly have several pumps, a canopy and a mini-mart in the US. Of course if you go to Manhattan to find a gas station, that will be a rare site since many of the city doesn't need a number of them, plus there is a zonning law about building new gas stations. Here are some of the Manhattan gas stations in NYC, but don't expect much.

The newly built Sonol Tower in Tel Aviv has a gas station at its base being that this is a gasoline company in Israel.
